Upstate Medical University, through its Supplier Diversity Program, is committed to ensuring equal opportunity for the vendors, suppliers, service providers, consultants, architects and engineers, and contractors who serve Upstate Medical University so that the enterprises competing for our business reflect the diversity of Central New York and the entire region.
The Supplier Diversity Program helps strengthen the economic development and viability of local businesses, and helps ensure that Upstate receives quality goods and services at competitive prices.
This program has been developed to be consistent with the goals of Upstate's Strategic Plan, Engaging Excellence, as well as the procedures set forth by the State University of New York Procurement Polices and Procedures. The program includes targeted outreach efforts aimed at increasing opportunities for a diverse range of businesses, including businesses certified as either minority or women-owned businesses through the Empire State Development, New York's economic development agency.
